Over the past few weeks, Apex Legends Season 6 has been giving some map hints about the upcoming update.
While many assume we’ll be introduced to a new map, the Season 6 update brings a host of updates to the existing World’s Edge map. It showcases a defense legend originating from India called Rampart, a new gun, crafting, and more. This is a big update that will definitely be loved by fans.
Apex Legends Season 6 update
New legend: Rampart
First, Apex Legends Season 6 welcomes a new legend named Rampart, she is British Indian and a seasoned modifier in the Outlands. If you play this game, you will know that each legend has a passive, tactical, and ultimate ability. Here are the capabilities of Rampart:
Passive – Known as the Modded Loader, this allows for faster magazine capacity and faster reloading of the LMG and Rampart’s state-of-the-art shotgun.
Strategy – Rampart is a defensive character and can build a ‘cover’ to not just protect you from others. It also increases the damage you do from behind walls. That’s right, walls, you can put up to 5 walls at once.
In the end – Sheila, which is what Rampart calls her mounted machine gun, can be deployed at any time and has hunts for everyone to use. It has a high reload capacity and a long reload time.
World’s Edge is strengthened
While Apex Legends developer Respawn was rumored to introduce a new map called ‘Olympus’ with Apex Legends Season 6, we got a revamped World of Edge. Now, there is a rocket ship in the Dome, the training site has been replaced with a Countdown and some other amazing interesting points.
New weapon: Volt SMG
Energy weapons seem to be the main focus in Season 6. Devotion has been swapped out from care packs. Havoc has a new recoil and now we also have an Energy-based SMG. It’s called Volt SMG and Titanfall 2 fans will be delighted to see this weapon in Apex Legends.
Evo armor for all
One of the biggest meta changes in Apex Legends Season 6 is armor, where each player drops an o-level Evo armor (a suit of armor that evolves as you deal damage). All white, blue, and purple standard armor is being swapped with Evo armor of the same color.
This means you can increase the damage to get any armor red (the most advanced) for 25 more health than purple or yellow armor. Gold armor is still in the game and its availability is still rare.
Craft – Apex Legends Season 6
Another gameplay change is the introduction of crafting in Apex Legends Season 6. You can now collect ingredients (through loot crates and raw material stations) to craft weapons, upgrade shields, accessories … Some items will change every day while the items Others will come and go every week.
Like any other season update before, Apex Legends tweaked each legend’s abilities to change teamwork. This time focusing on scouting class, Bloodhound and Crypto, in addition to Pathfinder, can now scan survey beacons for the location of the next round. He can later use his drone for this mission, who previously could sweep nearby enemies every 6 seconds when using his ultimate.
